  1. We would definitely agree with the orientation of the house, but due to the site being sloped, and the views at the north we don't have much choice. Also, as we are replacing an existing farmhouse, we didn't want to lose the farmhouse feature of the front elevation, which is visible from the road. On the bright side, at least we don't need to worry about over heating in the summer Would you suggest any changes in the internal layout?
  2. Thanks for replying, and for your questions. The views are the main reason we have the glass at the back, I will try to post some pictures up when I get a chance Thanks for replying, and for your questions. The views are the main reason we have the glass at the back, I will try to post some pictures up when I get a chance. As we are hopefully planning on using ICF construction, and if possible frameless glass, from my understanding we may use a cantilever design with obviously the additional steelwork/cage above the corner window I don't think we are too concerned with the large area of glazing on the rear elevation as I believe we will either be utilizing a large steel goal post type structure or additional steel within the ICF structure (columns) if applicable on the corners. This will hopefully be things that the engineer can clarify, fingers crossed. We just need a bit of luck to get through planning now!!
  3. Good evening all. We are about to submit these drawings for planning, and just wanted some feedback of what you all think. Any improvements and recommendations will be highly appreciated, as we may have missed something amidst the excitement of planning a new home. Many thanks Elevation Drawing:
